Jewelweed Profile

Ellen and I were taking a walk today during lunch and I spotted this interesting little flower. After some research I found out it is called jewelweed. Apparently the sap from this plant is nature's poison ivy treatment. Even more amazing is the flower's ability to mimic Alfred Hitchcock's profile. Nature provided us with a lesson and a laugh today.

Note: If you don't understand the Hitchcock reference, you should. Ask Jeeves or something.
